One of A Kind Pet Rescue is dedicated to making our community “no-kill” where all pets have loving homes, to saving the lives of animals in imminent danger of euthanasia, and enriching the lives of people through rescue, spaying/neutering, adoption and advocacy on behalf of homeless pets. One of A Kind is a no-time-limit shelter. Ill and / or injured animals brought to us by Good Samaritans are often given priority. Owner surrenders and strays are accepted when space is available.
